Jelastic offers its cloud hosting services through a growing, global network of web hosting service providers, making it easier than ever for developers to deploy their applications to the Cloud.
“Rusonyx launched its Jelastic beta just last month, and we are very pleased that our teams have been able to bring it to commercial availability in such a short period of time, “ said Jelastic COO Dmitry Sotnikov. “Now Russian developers will be able to access the full capabilities of the Jelastic platform. With our growing network of partners around the globe, we are realizing our vision being the world’s first global PaaS.”
Rusonyx CEO Andrew Schwarzkopf added, “We are very excited to be the first provider of Jelastic in Russia. Jelastic is the first platform that allows developers to quickly and efficiently deploy and scale applications in the Cloud.”
With its fast growing user base—over 16,000 users around the world have joined Jelastic in the last 8 months—and worldwide partners, Jelastic is the first truly global PaaS—with localizations in English, Russian and German, and Japanese currently in development. Jelastic is the first PaaS with no lock-in or code changes required. It is a software-stack agnostic platform for Java hosting that does not require coding to specific API’s or custom application servers or databases. With its revolutionary approach to Java hosting, it provides true auto-scaling for hosted applications and ensures that resources are automatically allocated without any extra work.
Jelastic’s customers are only charged for the resources they actually use. This allows customers to save money by scaling their applications to use only the RAM and CPU they need, or all the way off to save money.
Jelastic measures its resources by “cloudlet,” with one cloudlet being 128MB of RAM and 200MHz of CPU. The price is set at 0.7 RUB per cloudlet/hour and storage is 49 RUB per month for 1GB HDD. Jelastic requires no code changes, making it simple for developers to upload and deploy their Java applications or connect to their GIT code repository or SVN. Developers can have their applications up and running in the Cloud in just a few minutes – with no lock-in or code changes.
Current Rusonyx beta users that choose to become fully paid customers will get a 1000 RUB bonus to use as they wish; and any user that converts their beta account to a paid account by the 21st of May will get a 50% bonus on the funding they add to their account, with users that choose to make the switch on or before the 28th of May getting a 25% bonus on the funding they add to their account.
Jelastic is fully compatible with all major Java software stacks, including Tomcat, GlassFish, Jetty and JBoss application servers — as well as with SQL (MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL) and NoSQL (MongoDB, CouchDB) databases.Whether you want Tomcat hosting with Couch DB or you want to use GlassFish with MySQL, it’s easy. Jelastic is currently available in the US with ServInt, in Russia with Rusonyx and Germany with dogado.
